Bicycling Resources

(Some) cyclists have beardsBiking is fun and it’s a great option for getting around Austin if you like sunshine and the rush of wind in your hair! Believe it or not, bicycle travel times are often similar to or faster than driving during Austin rush hour. If your workplace is within 4 miles of your home, try biking to work one day next week. You may be surprised by how fast you return home.

Biking to work makes a lot of sense during good weather, but what about when it gets HOT? Many employers are installing showers at the office so employees that bike to work can freshen up and look professional. Talk to your building or human resources manager to find out if your workplace has an office shower or can add one.
